Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Firs Farm, River Action Day 11.12.2021

December 11 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Thames21 and Enfield Council are teaming up to deliver conservation and restoration events in Enfield, creating a cleaner and safer space for wildlife.

 

Join us at Firs Farm Wetlands where we will be managing the wetlands to make sure they are providing maximum ecosystem services and the greatest level of biodiversity.

 

This event is a habitat management event, focused around the wetlands at Firs Farm. It is a really well used space and we believe it deserves some care and attention!

 

The Firs Farm Wetlands is an exciting space that was created by Enfield Council and Thames21. The Moore Brook which runs through the wetlands used to be completely hidden in a pipe under the grass. Since the Moore Brook was surfaced it has fully naturalised and now boasts a huge number of species of plants and animals. A large number of flying insects, aquatic plants and waterfowl can be found at this site. This is an exciting project which really shows the potential for wildlife and flood mitigation if rivers are given the space to behave naturally. Come down and see for yourself!

 

There will be lots of tasks to do on the day including cleaning litter and rubbish out of the wetlands, building the island and more. To complete these tasks volunteers will be putting on waders and jumping in the shallow pond but there will also be lots of activities to do on the banks for people who don’t want to go into the water.

 

Come down and help us help restore the wetlands in Firs Farm! Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary. We provide all the tools, equipment and training so you can just turn up and get stuck in!
